Festival of Museums Day

 Digital Punk!


Have you ever wondered what a banana sounds like? If your answer is 'Yes!' then join the digital wizards from The Sensatronic-Lab for our Festival of Museums Day. They will have a number of interactive digital light and sound instruments for you to try; from playing a pizza box to a banana, a bicycle wheel to a poncho. Come and create your own music and light shows.

Suitable for children aged 4+

This event is ASN and Deafblind friendly.
